OK, needs better Tech Support and docs

on 9/25/2007

Totally happy with buy.com. Not so happy with 3COM. I have a 3COM Office connect travel router that has worked very well so I got this for my home when an old router died. The router works fine as a basic router. The antennas are not detachable to enable use of a higher gain or directional antennas. I was going to use an old access point to set up a repeater using WDS but there was a complete lack of info in the documentation on WDS setup. I contacted 3COM tech support and they provided a password protected link to a new firmware release but no documentation. I contacted them again and got a word file with instructions and the comment that they recommend only using WDS between 2 identical 3COM routers. I expected better support and features for the price.
